Believe demand for rentals will increase and hasn’t yet been priced in to apt reits.
Still a buy for its dividend.

Have been long for years as I like the apartment REIT category. Would you suggest any apartment REITs that are better values now.
@gastro4 Not the author, but I recently sold MAA at $145 because I also felt like it was fully valued. CPT is the closest peer to MAA and appears to be trading at roughly the same P/AFFO currently, but with a slightly higher dividend yield as of today. However, I've seen CPT discounted more over the past two years than MAA, so you might find an opportunity on a dip. I also like NXRT. They focus on most of the same markets as MAA but they are smaller and are highly focused on the value-add strategy of fixing up Class B units and raising rents upon completion. That one has been more of a growth stock and has a similar, but faster growing dividend than MAA. BRG and IRT are two others focused on the Sun Belt region. I've owned both in the past, but feel that they are not as well-managed and/or have excessive debt vs. peers. Long: CPT and NXRT.
